McHenry Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its role. Everything fills a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their places in treating the pain, disability and range of motion loss. They’re needed. Spengel Chiropractic takes care of many McHenry neck pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is recently documented as particularly beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 

BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Spengel Chiropractic incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Spengel Chiropractic utilizes The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to ease neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols produced total resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 cervical spine radiculopathy patients, Cox® flexion distraction reduced pain in 13.2 treatments (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the incorporation of stretching to the plan was more effective at returning cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion without touching pain and disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help address the pain and disability component. Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its role in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is key! Another study further stated that neck stretching is a most effective physical therapy intervention.  Static and diagonal active stretching were helpful at decreasing neck disability and improving cervical spine range of motion. Further, cervical range of motion values significantly increased at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study suggesting positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain relief studies, Spengel Chiropractic makes certain to share benefits of various ways to decrease neck pain.
